Contagion Clasp Discussion

Winterblast on LGS Tribal Challenge - Birds!

I would suggest you put in some more stuff that meddles with the counters on the commander. Preferrably cards that are good alone as well and/or can win the game on their own.

For example: Clockspinning - also works well with planeswalkers and the buyback makes an easy infinite combo with Paradox Engine (don't forget to add more mana artifacts!). Isochron Scepter with Dramatic Reversal is a similar method and both cards are great on their own. Contagion Clasp is a nice removal for little creatures and it can help with the commander counters too...very effective with Tezzeret the Seeker .

good planeswalkers for this deck would be Jace, the Mind Sculptor, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Tezzeret the Seeker and maybe some Ajani or Gideon, because most of the cards for these two guys have some aggro boosts in their abilities.

a good 5 colour deck is surely expensive, just because of the manabase. you either have only splashed colours and mostly artifacts (which are usually expensive), or you rely on the coloured spells and need a lot of fetchlands and duals...or it's unreliable ;)

I currently play a 4 colour deck, which also has a lot of planeswalkers, but I didn't use the mediocre's a strong proactive control deck, so if you want to invest some more Money you might find some ideas here: Atraxa's super(un)friendly Stax

I wouldn't recommend Contagion Engine but rather Contagion Clasp, because of the mana cost.

With the number of -1 -1 counters you are distributing I recommend adding more things with Proliferate than just Grim Affliction such as Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Core Prowler, Spread the Sickness, and if you add artafafacts to sacrifice Throne of Geth. I would also ramp up the grave yard recursion. Phyrexian Reclamation can help you get your creatures back Really your strength is in numbers. I would also think that Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief might make a better general. she might as well read kill their biggest creature and attack for half lethal general damage.

Thanks for the up-vote. You will get mine when this is more efficient.

I see you already have Rings of Brighthearth in your maybeboard, but I really suggest you move it to mainboard ASAP. Being able to ramp up twice as fast with Yisan can be really deadly at any stage of the game.

Also, the Proliferate effect can be used to increase the number of Verse counters on Yisan, in order to start fetching out higher CMC creatures faster. There's only a few options for monogreen, Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, and Plaguemaw Beast.

Nice deck overall, always liked Yisan as a Commander.

boneknitter on Are there other cards similar ...

1 week ago

I had one Planeswalker deck, but due to playability issues (5 colors) a friend recommended that I make 2 to 3 separate decks so that I can focus more on abilities.

So my question is, are there any other cards that are similar to Contagion Engine,Contagion Clasp,and Inexorable Tide that would allow me to proliferate to add loyalty counters to my walkers?

Play an Ichor Rats for an alt win con. Also why not play Contagion Clasp, and Contagion Engine? Also, por que no Vindicate, or tutors? Deck looks solid other than that

How do you like Contagion Clasp and Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon?

Also, I'm used to seeing Rancor in BG Infect ... do you find the deck does fine without?

Draw well!
